Employee Benefits

More bang for your buck.

From strategic guidance to streamlined administration, we work hard to deliver value.
We dedicate our expertise, time, and resources to help you navigate the ever-more complex world of health insurance and related health benefits. Our mission is to maximize value, control costs, and educate you and your employees in the purchase, management, and administration of health benefits.

Strategic Guidance and Management

Arguably the most important thing we do, it begins with your objectives and the needs of your employees too. Then – every year – the evaluation of your current benefits in the context of current markets and legislation, searching for that sweet spot between strength of coverage and cost. The process involves various elements, including:

  • Plan benchmarking and design
  • Cost-benefit financial analysis
  • Contribution modeling
  • Network analysis – both macro and micro level
  • Employee surveys

Benefits Administration

An efficient, accurate system and workflows will free up your time to focus on other important aspects of your business. Whether we’re leveraging a current technology platform you have in place, or implementing one of our preferred platforms, such as Maxwell Health or PlanSource, or utilizing a more basic combination of forms and documents, we will streamline your workflows.   

Service and Support

Service is not just what we deliver…it’s who we are.  And you’ll experience it through our multi-level support to you and your employees.  We get high marks for our fast, friendly, and thorough resolution of all benefits issues, including:

  • Eligibility and coverage issues
  • Enrollment or termination issues
  • Claims and billing issues
  • COBRA issues
  • Legal and compliance issues

Employee Communication

Your company or organization spends a lot of money on employee benefits…so let’s make them shine!  And at the same time, let’s empower your employees to be smart healthcare consumers, maximizing their satisfaction and value. We create, customize and deliver various types of communication to educate and inform employees throughout the year, including:

Compliance
